Summer Touches of Grace
Summer may be behind us now, but the memories are fresh and the lessons they taught me rest deep within my soul.
Do grown daughters with busy lives of their own crave mother-daughter time? I am so glad mine do! Summer afforded me several one-on-one occasions with each of them.
I forgot what a pretty city Tucson is although my oldest daughter didn’t enjoy the heat as much as me. The resort’s pool made up for any discomfort!
My youngest daughter is a power prayer warrior. We strolled along the Coronado Beach at sunset praying for our family and friends. I cherish times like these, just her and me….and God.
I am lavishly fulfilled when I think of the summer days with the daughter of my heart. Thank you, friends, for your concern for Angie. She made it through her surgery but complications sent her back to the hospital weeks later. Chronic pain restricts this compassionate, people-loving gal, confining her to her home.
By the end of summer, my back needed adjustment so I visited my “body magician,” my favorite doctor and friend, Dan. We prayed for him at the first of the year, remember? He’s back in business, every melanoma tumor gone, and he is praising Jesus for what he describes as “miraculous!” Friends, he was not a believer before this trial. Please hear my heart full of gratitude for your prayers and kind words...and God’s amazing grace.
I sat next to Brian in church today, the guy we’ve been praying for and rejoicing with because God healed him of liver cancer. Second report came back same as the first, cancer free! I told his wife that he’s never looked more handsome. She replied: "Or younger."
What are the highlights of your summer? Anything you want to share as we do life together? Are you, like me, ready for a new season…hoodies, soups and all things pumpkin?
